Product Description

Caterpillar D5 | dozers for sale | bull dozer | ironmartonline.com



Classic Construction Equipment


This probably isn't the Caterpillar D5 you're thinking of. The modern incarnation of the D5 actually dates from its reintroduction in 1967, when Caterpillar started manufacturing the machines again after a gap of nearly thirty years. The original D5 was so unique that it was only manufactured for one year (1939), and only 46 were ever made; of these, this machine is one of only eight known to be left.

What make the D5 unique? For starters, it's the first tractor Caterpillar built to pull more than its own weight. For another thing, it's actually a hybrid of two bulldozers. It takes its five-roller chassis from the Caterpillar D4 (first introduced in 1936). However, instead of using the 4-cylinder D4400 engine found on the D4, it actually uses the more powerful 6-cylinder, 45hp D4600 engine from the D6. As a result, the 1939 version of the D5 literally combined a smaller size with the power of a much larger crawler.

This Caterpillar D5 carries serial # 9M11. It has only 5152 hours (not bad for a machine with more than seven decades under its belt) measures 14'6"x8'7"x5'10" (LxWxH) and weighs 23,000 pounds. It's only on its third owner, who's owned this army surplus machine since 1997. He has restored it to its original Cat yellow paint job and decal package; otherwise, aside from the paint job, this machine is 100% original.

For more than a century, Caterpillar machinery has traveled -- and worked -- the world over. Cat technology has assisted in two world wars, countless construction projects, and even the moon landings. You can buy a Caterpillar for its power, durability, and versatility. But when you buy a Cat, as this D5 proves, you're buying a machine with a heritage.
